Electrical audits can be conducted to ensure fundamental safety principals are being adhered to. Our report will include recommendations to ensure compliance to legislation, and secondly, recommendations in terms of improving or upgrading electrical installations in line with the current code of practice (SANS 10142-1).

Sampling process

The following sampling steps are adopted in our audit process.

 

Audit grades

For purposes of an audit, it is important to distinguish between the different grades of inspection that would be used to gather evidence.

The three grades include: Closed, Visual and Detailed Inspections.

In a Closed method, only Distribution Boards would be opened; the rest of the installation remains unopened and is merely visually inspected.

In a Visual inspection, Distribution Boards as well as all other accessible enclosures/fittings are opened without the need to isolate them, after which a visual inspection is conducted.

During a Detailed inspection, isolation of electrical installation/s are required as to enable the auditor to confirm aspects such as the integrity of terminations on luminaries, socket outlets and motor terminations etc. (Incorporates all aspects listed in the closed and visual inspections).

Format of Evidence and Reports

The inspection would be the visualisation of non-compliant evidence.

This means the taking of digital photos and enhancing with a qualifying description as to why it is considered non-compliant complete with current Code of Practice references and applicable Occupational Health and Safety Regulations.

This ensures that the organisation has the same understanding as to the meaning of the different clauses in the Code of Practice (SANS 10142 Part 1) and applicable Occupational Health and Safety Regulations.

Our offices should be contacted to assess the relevant costs involved in providing the Audit service as well as processes followed in this regard.
